Mühldorf is a Landkreis (district) in Upper Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by (from the north and clockwise) the districts of Landshut, Rottal-Inn, Altötting, Traunstein, Rosenheim, Ebersberg and Erding.

History[edit]

Most parts of the district have belonged to Bavaria from the 13th century on. The archbishopric of Salzburg possessed some estates in the region as well from the year 798.[2] In 1803, when the clerical states of Holy Empire were dissolved, Bavaria annexed these estates.

Geography[edit]

The district is located in generally plain countryside on either bank of the Inn River.
